The New Socialist Party (新社会党 Shin Shakai-tō?) was a left-wing party created in Japan on March 3, 1996, by a group of left wingers who left the Social Democratic Party. [1][2]

The party has some similarities to the Japanese Communist Party. It is able to assert its left-wing views democratically, unlike other hard-line atheist-orientated, communist political parties in Japan. It says that people can have "freedom of thought and religious beliefs". A peaceful democratic revolution, peace, and human rights constitute what the party desires to be part of Japan's constitution. Another idea they support is direct democracy.

Another viewpoint that the party shares with the Japanese Communist Party, although slightly different[clarification needed], is the belief Japan should completely stop using its nuclear power, so Japan can become a nation with "unarmed neutrality." [3]
